Hi.

Can anybody tell me the length of the Highbridge & Burnham U&DGL loop please. I want to divert a freight train into it to allow an ECS to overtake it.

I can't see it in the Bristol Manual. This doesn't mean that it's not in there, just that I may have missed it.

Thanks in advance.

My goodness, that was difficult, but I managed it.

Have you tried wiki?

It's not my fault! I was left unsupervised.

No I haven't. Is it actually in the Wiki then?

Being sim specific I thought that it would be in the relevant manual and nowhere else.

The link provided in above post will take you to the Bristol Manual in simsig wiki

It's in the Sim manual under loop lengths at 500m so more than enough for most freights

That's strange. In my version of the manual the following 2 entries seem to be missing:

Yatton - DPL 564m/1,848ft, UPL 544m, 1,785ft;
Highbridge & Burnham - 500m/1,638ft.

Thanks anyway. However, I took a chance and it fitted in as it's only 95m long.

My goodness, that was difficult, but I managed it.

If you wish to download and keep your own version of manuals rather than using whatever is the version available through the Wiki you run the parallel risks of having a corrupted version saved to your own media and also not having the benefit of any updates since you created your own version.

Any reason why you don't just access the online version when required?

No reason really. I suppose that it's just as easy to open manuals via the Wiki as saving and opening my own version. Hadn't thought about possible updates, but now that you mention them, I'll delete my own versions and view those in the Wiki in future.

Thanks for the advice.

My goodness, that was difficult, but I managed it.

From looking at the version history, the loop lengths of Yatton and Highbridge were added last November

Mmmm. Interesting.

Anyway, I have now deleted all of my 'saved' sim manuals and now open the Wiki version when playing a sim. I'll keep an eye out for any updates too.

My goodness, that was difficult, but I managed it.
